Within the Sexual Health Department, we aim to support young people by building relationships of trust and stability, looking at different issues they may face.
- We aim to raise their self-esteem, so that they can realise their worth.
- Giving them space to reflect on their experiences regarding relationships, safety and health
- Equip them with the tools to make positive choices in the future and invest in them by raising their aspirations and offering opportunities to learn new skills.
We work with many young people of a variety of ages, ability and need including some of the most vulnerable young people at risk of sexual exploitation. We offer personalised sessions for schools, youth organisations and youth clubs including:
Small group work
- Chic project which is a prevention strategy that provides young women with 6 sessions which aims for them to become more resilient and less socially isolated. We hope for them to remain engaged in education with improved attitudes to learning, concentrating on future aspirations and what it means to them to succeed.
- Leave it 'til later group programme which consists of 12 weekly sessions aimed at adopting and reinforcing approaches that empower young people to make informed, safer choices resulting in healthier outcomes and a greater awareness of risk.
Providing a personalised package for young people identified as needing more intensive support around their sexual behaviours, with an emphasis towards increasing their resilience, improving their ability to make healthier choices and reducing their vulnerability to risk.
